  • Epidurals do have the possibility of damaging some nerves.
    I had a spinal block, WAYY different, but my MIL had an epidural, and she still feels pain, right where it was put in, sometimes.

  • I suffered from chronic back pain for a few years after my epidural.  I went to a chiropractor and he said I had some scar tissue from the epidural.  He worked that spot every time I went to see him and a year later I was pain free.

  • scar tissue sounds right...

  • It is not unusual for the side effects of an epidural to last over a year. Many women have them for the rest of their lives. An epidural is not the benign pain blocker that most women seem to believe.

  • I really wish I never had a epidural. Since I have had one I have had severe backpain and muscle tightness. I contribute this as side effects that have lasted over 3 years.
